A Summary of Dental Bonding

Dental bonding involves our dentist fusing tooth-colored materials to one or more teeth to restore the tooth and enhance the shape and color. The dental bonding material can be porcelain or resin. We invite you to review the following dental bonding FAQs to learn more about this cosmetic process:

What can dental bonding do?

The many uses of dental bonding include:

  • Filling in small cavities
  • Repairing cracks and chips in the teeth
  • Covering discolorations in the teeth
  • Closing large spaces between teeth
  • Lengthening the teeth
  • Improving overall tooth shape
  • Covering exposed tooth root after gum recession

What are some benefits of dental bonding?

  • Dental bonding can be performed right in the office without needing to be created in a dental lab, unlike many dental restorations.
  • Depending on how many teeth need treatment, we can often perform the full dental bonding procedure in just one visit to the office.
  • There is not usually a need for anesthesia if we aren’t filling a cavity.

How can I care for a bonded tooth?

Maintain effective dental hygiene habits. This includes brushing and flossing daily and receiving dental checkups every six months.

How long can dental bonding last?

Your results can last three to 10 years without repairs, depending on how much bonding id required and if you care for your teeth.
